Who Was Zerubavel?

No matter how bleak things seem to be, Hashem never give up on us.

Parashat Behaalotecha: Summer Vacation

We are bound by G-d’s laws when we are in yeshiva, at home, in the synagogue, in the office, at a social event, or on vacation.

Hating The Jews

To gain power or distract the population from their suffering, a monarch would look for a place to put the blame.

Almost Exact

But even after one follows all of the rules and performs the mitzvah correctly, the essential part is that we adhered to Hashem’s command and performed His will.

BEHA’ALOTECHA: Can I Be Vulnerable with G-d?

How can we understand, and relate, to the Children of Israel, a seemingly ungrateful, chutzpadik nation as it crosses the desert?

The Dark Clouds

Moses acted properly in his role of prophet. He failed in his role as a husband; he did not see Tziporah's suffering, her black cloud.

Redeeming Relevance: The Wisdom of Withdrawal: Parshat Behaalotecha

If Moshe was the greatest man that ever lived, his silent partner Tzipporah deserves much of the credit for it.

The Guiding Staff

The Malbim explains that when G-d asked Moshe what was in his hand he was testing him. He was essentially asking Moshe to define how he viewed his role as leader.

I Never Do Anything Wrong

So on both sides of the spectrum, the yetzer hara either should be unable to convince the person it is permitted – or it shouldn’t need to do any convincing.

Certainly Doubtful

Why don’t we require the nazir to start his term again and why doesn’t the regular person who enters the Mikdash receive a punishment?

Naso: Adding Godliness To Our Lives

In Parshat Naso, we are introduced to what seems like a hodgepodge of miscellaneous laws. Why is the Torah bringing these up together?

Redeeming Relevance: Parshat Naso: Holy Negativity is Still Negativity

Enjoyment of God’s world always comes with some innate meaning – something which is lacking in the case of abstinence, the case of the Nazir.

Tefillah: A Meeting With Hashem – The Day Of Love

Were it not for the great and infinite love that Hashem has for us, we would not have received the Torah, nor would we dare ask for the gift of Torah on a regular basis.

Not Where You’re At But Where You’re Coming From

“That is you – had you lived up to your potential, had you become what you were destined to be.”

Waves & Weapons

For those of you who are familiar with the Arizal’s modus operandi of matching each of the months with one of the twelve tribes, I am sure Sivan has got you perplexed.

Do Women Recite Birchas HaTorah?

Women are exempt only from the first general obligation to learn Torah, not the second, more specific one.

Bamidbar: How Can We Transmit God’s Values?

Bamidbar should open with the stories of the desert, right? Evidently not. Why?

Redeeming Relevance: Parsha Bemidbar: Follow Which Leader?

The Torah recognizes the phenomenon of leadership and brings it to our attention subtly in the Book of Bemidbar, through the way it lists the names of the different tribes.

Parshat Bechukotai

The terrorists were told that they would be given a plane to take them to an Arab country.

If You Will Labor In Torah Study

Man has two competing sides to him, each one crying out to fulfill it needs, each one demanding its fill.

Parshat Bechukotai: The Miracle of Satisfaction

Depending on their spiritual condition, human beings will either be satisfied with what they have, or will not. This is the determining factor whether or not it is a year of 'plenty.'

Chasing Thousands

I would like to point out that this part of the tochacha has been visited upon us today, and it is important that we realize it.

Baruch Who? Baruch Shemo

What else do we know about Baruch ben Neriyah?

Everybody’s Doing It

The Torah is teaching us that even a mature adult faced with a difficult trial will be greatly influenced by what others are doing.

Ribbis

If a person steals an item and then dies, his children must return the stolen item.
